winelearner reviewed Southbank Estate, Hawkes Bay SYRAH 2005 on February 14, 2011
Having liked some of the Syrah produced by Australia, wonder what this New Zealand would be like. It had more of a light fruity aroma, not like some of those jam packed Australian issues, taste was more lightly as well, fresh floral, more in line with something from the Rhone Area, in fact thought at one time bottle had wrong label as it seemed to me more like a New Zealand Pinot Noir.
